Diaper Ant

Since Ethan is not using much diapers these days, his diaper bag is hardly touched, at least not until last weekend when I was packing to go back hometown. I did not check the bag initially. Just load somemore diapers in it. But don’t know why, I have a strong feeling to take them all out and rearrange. That is when I found out that ants have been living in there! Loads of ants scattered […]

Solving puzzles

I never thought of giving Ethan puzzles to play with. I always find puzzles troublesome and I can imagine him throwing all the pieces away and slowly losing piece by piece. Until that day, Irene gave Ethan a puzzle that consists of 4 sets of 12 pieces puzzles. He took an instant interest in it. To date, he is able to master all four puzzles. This is a video of him solving one of his […]

What itchy hands do to itchy legs…

Whenever the mozzies kissed him, he’ll scratch and scratch like mad. Doesn’t help that I applied some soothing creams on him. It won’t give the same satisfaction as scratching does! His itchy fingers will go on scratching his itchy legs until they bleed and leave unsightly scars. So these days, the first thing I’ll do if I see a mozzie bite on him is this! I have boxes and boxes of cute plasters to conceal […]

Spears making a comeback

Oh Baby Baby…Oops I Did It Again… Hit me baby one more time! This fella is trying to give Ms Spears a run for her money with his belly strutting act. Next thing I know, he’ll ask to get his belly pierced! Taken on the stage of Dumex promotion in 1U over the weekend. ^^

Shocking stares!

We normally have mall~weekends. There is nothing much we like to do except going to malls for window shopping. Yesterday, as we were walking, Ethan told me that he was getting tired and sleepy. So I placed him in his stroller and gave him his pacifier and something else to play with. Few minutes later, Darling and I got a very uneasy feeling as people were staring into the stroller with shocking looks on their […]

I’ll work harder!

Darling’s at the PC fair today. He wanted to get me a laptop, but at the very last minute, decided against it! Hahaha.. And I am still laughing here. Why? Because I never asked to be given a laptop in the first place. It’s just him, he saw me online so frequent these days, he is afraid I will ‘damage‘ his precious desktop at home and thought of getting me my own laptop. Alas, I […]

One diaper a day, keeps Mommy happy!

As I am typing this post, my bum is literally dancing on my seat. Why? Because Ethan is now officially diaper free during the day! Hurray! Every mother’s dream come true! I did not do anything to train him off diapers previously. Just the day after he turns two, I took his diapers off during the day and let him around the house with his underwear and pants. I had to monitor him and bring […]

Hidden Meat

Ethan is similar to me in the sense that he prefers to eat his greens compared to meat. If he senses that there are too much meat in the rice in his mouth, he will throw it out. He is not a picky eater. It’s just that he prefers to eat veges rather than meat. So, sometimes when I cook, I’ll try to hide the meat in the greens. One good example is the egg […]

Locked Out

I was outside, at the porch, hanging my laundry. I left the door grill close but door open so I can still see Ethan playing in the house. Whilst I was busy with the laundry, this rascal went and twist the door lock and shut the door! I was horrified! Ran to the door, and it was locked! Die~man! Ethan was inside the house all alone, locked! And I was outside! My knees went wobbly […]

I’ve reach payout!

These days, Ethan refuses to nap in the evenings. Only occasionally will he nap. Most of the time, he’ll stay awake the whole day! That means, I have less time to go online. So when I do have time to go online at night when he finally dozes off, I’ll check my blog and go blog hopping first. Then, multi task to myLot. I’ve not been too active in myLot last week since I was […]

Meeting a blogger friend

See this lil‘ missy? Recognise this lil‘ missy? Good if you do, if you don’t, wait till the end of this post to see who she is. I’ve been chatting with this fellow blogger quite a lot over MSN. Yesterday, we finally met up @ The Curve, Ikano and Ikea. I went there with Ethan alone without Darling as he needs to work. She came with her hubs and lil‘ missy. This is my favourite […]

7 Days

Remember Ethan reciting the 12 months of the year? Well, I thought since he knows his twelve months, why not try the seven days of the week? Who knows, as foong says, it might be ‘kacang putih‘! But it is not so ‘kacang’ putih’ after all. Ethan finds it easier to recite the months instead of the days. But in the end, this is the result.. Don’t ask me why he pronounce his Saturday that […]

Take 2

Now that Ethan’s birthday is over and no more blowing of candles, Ethan and I will lie down on the floor and play back the video recordings of him blowing the candles as he loves it to the max! Just a moment ago, I found this video that I’ve overlooked when I did the earlier post on Ethan’s birthday. I find that I love his expression here very much. With just one blow, both the […]

(Not) The Correct Way To Carry Your Toddler

Each time after his bath, Ethan loves to be wrapped and carried this way. It never fails to make him laugh. I can’t carry him like that though. Only Daddy can do it.. ^^

Ethan is TWO today!

My little rascal is two today. How time flies! I baked him a simple butter cake of heart and star shape. He helped me in the process and got very excited once he saw the cute cake! The cake. This is how they looked like fresh out from the oven. I got these silicone moulds from Daiso. Darling got him a cake that was supposed to be shared with my students tonite. But suddenly, the […]

Do you know all the 12 months of the year?

I was teaching my Year 1 students the 12 months of the year yesterday. Today while preparing Ethan for bed, this is what he recites to me… I almost fainted! But I am indeed happy. Now that he knows his 12 months of the year, I think I’ll start him on the seven days of the week! ^^ Ethan @ 1 year 11 months

I’ve perfected my baking skills

When I first started baking, I was so proud of the outcome. I thought I had baked a wonderful piece of art, until a friend of mine kindly whispered to me that cakes are not suppose to pop and crack! Aiks, how come no one told me this before? LOL. So I practised baking again. This time I had it just right. My lemon cupcakes turn out just nice. Fluffy and beautiful. No cracks this […]

What’s so special about this okra dish?

Look at this okra dish I whipped out today. So what is so special about it? It’s very special I tell you. Money can’t buy. Because, I grew it myself! I finally harvested my first batch of okras grown in some pots in my porch! Yee Haa! My lovely okras…

How to peel your mangosteen into a lollipop

After my post on mangosteen lollipop, I’ve received many emails asking me how I managed to get the mangosteen to be peeled that way. So I’ve decided to get Darling to peel it and I recorded it for all of you to see. This is how he peels mangosteen into a lollipop. Enjoy.

It’s Darling’s Birthday today!

It’s Darling’s birthday today. We are not going anywhere tonight. I still have class as usual. Just got him a simple yogurt and cheese cake from Secret Recipe. He doesn’t need anything fancy this year, because he has this:- P/S: If you are wondering why the cake is written “Happy Birthday Daddy William and Ethan Boy”, it is because Ethan’s birthday falls exactly a week after Daddy’s! So today is actually a prelude to Ethan’s […]

Nintendo Wii for Grandmas

The recent weekend, my Mom was up in KL with several of my aunts at my cousin’s place. There she was introduced to Nintendo Wii! Fuiyo, never knew my Mom can keep up with the tech and this is the video of her playing Tennis on wii! And Ethan? He just stood there wondering what Grandma was doing! LOL.

Finally, we went swimming!

Okay, after so much thoughts, like a couple of ol‘ fellas, we finally brought Ethan swimming last Saturday! He went into the water without even hesitating! Enjoy the videos and photos. :) Father and son bonding in water…Ethan wanting to ‘drink’ the pool water! OMG…He is all smiles as he gets to walk in the pool, slippery though… Ok, so he is not too thrilled to be photographed with mommy.. Alrite, I know, I know… […]

Sleeping on an old fashion head rest

When I watched the old era Chinese movies, I often wondered how they sleep with their ‘box’ like head pillow. And then today, this little rascal suddenly went and lie on his ‘box’ of books. Suddenly reminded me of how those people back then slept! By the look of it, he doesn’t look too comfortable! What? Neck pain or cheek pain?Must ‘sayang‘ his dolphin first…Aiks… finally in slumber~land! In my opinion, Ethan looks extremely like […]
